What is the Push Press?

The push press is a weightlifting exercise that primarily targets the shoulders, triceps, and upper back. It is performed by first dipping the hips and then using the momentum generated from the dip to press the weight overhead. The legs, hips, and core also play a role in the movement, making it a full-body exercise. The push press is an important exercise in Olympic weightlifting as it helps build explosive power and strength needed for the snatch and the clean and jerk.

Purpose

The purpose of the push press is to increase strength and power in the shoulders, triceps, and upper back, as well as to improve overall full-body coordination and explosiveness. The push press is also used to improve the overhead press, a common exercise in strength training. Additionally, as it is a compound exercise that involves multiple muscle groups, it also helps to improve overall muscle mass and endurance. It is also used as a training exercise for Olympic weightlifting as it helps to improve the explosiveness and power needed for the snatch and the clean and jerk.
